While professional courses and how-to manuals can prepare us for expected events that will occur in the course of our careers, there remains an untapped reservoir of life experience that cannot be prepared for in training or study. These events and experiences give texture and meaning to our work and shape our character. Filled with stories of courage and inspiration, What They Didn't Teach at the Academy: Topics, Stories, and Reality Beyond the Classroom looks at experiences encountered by public safety and military professionals that were not necessarily encompassed in their training or realistically portrayed in simulations. Topics raised in the stories include: A doctor confronting her own debilitating and potentially fatal disease Cultural awareness and safe travel Suicide among law enforcement officers Departmental harassment of a new police recruit Coping with an addicted spouse Posttraumatic stress disorder Life as a K-9 handler The effect of work obligations on marriage and family Conflicts between moral beliefs and professional principles Debunking myths about Islam The book also examines coping mechanisms for stress and discusses the importance of observation, perception, and communication in facing challenging encounters. Through this collection of vignettes and philosophies, the contributors demonstrate that the lessons of life are not taught in colleges, universities, and academies but through hard experience.

Fifty years ago, familiar images of the lottery would have been strange, as no state lottery existed then. Few researchers have uncovered the obscure role lotteries play in the changing composition of American taxation. Even less is known about what role race plays in this process. More than simply taxing those on the social margins, the emergence of state lotteries in contemporary American history represents something much more fundamental about state fiscal policy. This book not only uncovers the underlying racial factors that contextualize lottery proliferation in the U.S., but also reveals the racial consequences that lotteries have in terms of redistributing tax liability.

Safeguarding Child Protection and Abuse in Sport

The safeguarding of children and young people participating in sport has become an increasingly prominent concern in policy-making and research communities around the world. Major organisations such as the IOC and UNICEF now officially recognize that children in sport can be at risk of exploitation and abuse, and this concern has led to the emergence of new initiatives and policies aimed at protecting vulnerable young people and athletes. This book is the first to comprehensively review contemporary developments in child protection and safeguarding in sport on a global level. The book is divided into two parts. Part One critically analyses current child protection and safeguarding policy and practice in sport across a range of countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, China and Germany, providing a global context for current policy and practice. This represents the most comprehensive review to date of the landscape of child protection and safeguarding in sport and provides a starting point for critical international comparisons. Part Two explores a range of issues related to child protection and safeguarding in sport, including many not covered in previous books, such as emotional abuse, injury and over-training. While in many instances the impetus for policy in this area has arisen from concerns about sexual abuse, the second part of this book therefore opens up a broader, more holistic approach to child and athlete welfare. By bringing together many of the leading researchers working in child and athlete protection in sport from around the world, this book is important reading for all advanced students, researchers, policy-makers or practitioners working in youth sport, physical education, sports coaching, coach education or child protection.

In this age of terrorism, world and national security as well as policing the streets of our country have become an increasingly important objective. This book brings together international experts on stress, resiliency and performance. These experts draw on latest research with military and police personnel to provide an integrated perspective on the psychological pressures involved in this type of work, as well as practical recommendations on how to optimize human performance in security operations. This book examines research and practical applications to the field of security operations that provide new insights into the common stressors and challenges encountered by personnel and organizations involved in security. The book is divided into three sections. Section I provides basic theoretical perspectives on both social and psychological factors that significantly impact human responses to high stress demands of security operations. A theoretical model of resilience is presented, with special reference to the police officer's job. The model includes many factors that are addressed throughout the book, and provides a useful framework for considering both the selection and the training issues. Section II emphasizes scientifically grounded, yet practical, approaches for selecting, training, and preparing personnel to function effectively in security operations. Section III presents a collection of both case studies and special life-threatening scenarios that workers and leaders in security operations may face. The training of new police officers in Kosovo and of local demining teams in Sudan and Iraq are addressed, including contagion in the use of deadly force by police and security workers. The preparation of security personnel to cope with the threat of chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear materials is a special problem, and this book provides positive direction concerning human performance and effectiveness. It will serve as an outstanding resource for defense organizations, local, state and federal police forces, contract security firms, security operations personnel, policymakers, and educators in the military--Publisher's description.
